this conflict, syrian president bashar al-assad has blamed the high civilian deaths on the rebels themselves, foreign agents and military accidents. >> ( translated ): we do not carry out these acts because we love to spill blood. this battle was forced upon us, and the result is this blood that has been spilled. >> warner: malinowski of human rights watch says the rebels do have abuses to account for, too. >> the overwhelming majority of human rights abuses in this conflict have been committed by the syrian government and its militia allies. that doesn't mean that the rebels have been perfect. >> warner: just today, video surfaced of f.s.a. forces allegedly executing unarmed syrian soldiers, though the veracity of the video could not be verified. still, when it comes to killing civilians, independent observers hold the regime primarily responsible. in late may, more than 100 men, women and children were butchered in the village of houla. a united nations-appointed panel said government forces and loyalist militias were responsible for the massacre. then too, president assad denied his regim

the regime of assad. syrian rebels now have access to shoulder to air missiles and they shot down both a jet plane and a helicopter in the past 24 hours. the air very majority has been a key to the asat survival here in the past 18 or 20 months because of the superiority they is bombed and killed rebels. the ground tactic that the two sides have are relatively even with not were of a difference between what the co-can accomplish but with the air superiority assad is in a more powerful position but you take that superiority away we could see a stronger and fatter advance by the seen rebels, possibly toward damascus and this is a renewed focus on what the rebels can accomplish in the coming months to end the war in syria. >>shepard: thank you, conor. ♪ [ male announcer ] are you on medicare? do you have the coverage you need? open enrollment ends friday, december 7th. so don't wait. now's the time to get on a path that could be right for you... with unitedhealthcare medicare solutions. call today to learn about the kinds of coverage we offer, including aarp medicarecomplete plans insured thr

that bashar assad was about to go. well, he hasn't gone, and, you know, thousands upon thousands of children are dying in syria, many being tortured in front of tear families, and the -- in front of their families, and the unite isn't doing that much. we tried to do something at the united nations, it failed. >> it failed in large measure because the chinese and russians -- with whom we were supposed to have hit the reset button, remember that? -- haven't allowed anything to get done. and this person who was supposed to be a superb diplomat hasn't mansioned to get -- managed to get that off square one. the united nations have sent an observer, and what they're observing is what you described. megyn: do you think another u.n. ambassador could have gotten something done? do you think if we had a john bolton, for example, they could have convinced russia to go against syria? do you think so? >> short answer is, i don't think. but i think it pays to ask the questions. this person is being put forward as secretary of state. what have you done in your post to warrant that? she was also, by the way

throughout the entire country. op sfwligs active i says saying this is a tactic that the assad regime has used in the past, although not as widespread as it seems to be in this case. we've been traveling quite extensively over the last two days, and what is quite striking is that areas, neighborhoods, cities that, one could not travel through, say, two months ago because they were under the control of the assad regime or because they were battle zones are now beginning to have signs of civilian life returning to them because they are firmly in control of the opposition. in fact, there are vast areas of territory in aleppo territory that the government no longer controls, except for sporadic cities that are predominantly shia but by and large in the parts of the aleppo, we've been able to travel significantly more east than what we've been able to based on two months ago. >> i understand that we are communicating via satellite. because of the cell phone service, it's down. who is responsible, first of all, for this blackout, this information blackout, this international blackout, and how i
